At NJ Spine and Wellness, we offer numerous foot and ankle treatments that can help you Get Better Faster.

Inside your foot and ankle lies a complex and intricate network of bones, muscles, ligaments, and tendons. Although your foot and ankle are strong enough to ensure and bear the weight of your body, they can be prone to pain, especially for athletes and patients with physically-demanding jobs.

While some home remedies — like ice, rest, compression, elevation, and over-the-counter medication can help alleviate foot and ankle pain, this rehabilitation process can be slow; in some cases, chronic foot and ankle pain may even require surgery to repair and strengthen the region.

If you’re experiencing pain in your foot or ankle, schedule a consultation at one of our locations in New Jersey, including:

Conservative Treatments for Foot and Ankle Pain

Our dedicated team of doctors, physical therapists, and other foot and ankle specialists can help you devise a non-surgical approach to relieve your pain and other issues. At NJ Spine and Wellness, our conservative approach to foot and ankle treatments include:

Rest

By allowing your foot and ankle to rest, you can help speed up the rate of healing; this can be combined with ice packs to reduce swelling and mitigate pain.

Immobilization

We may suggest bracing the foot or using crutches, a walker, or another form of immobilization to promote healing at the injury site.

Specialized Footwear

In some cases, wearing special shoes or customized orthotics can help relieve pain and pressure at the injury site while reducing inflammation. Using insoles allows you to keep your soft tissues and bones in the proper place to stimulate healing.

Injections

Injections like corticosteroids or platelet-rich plasma may be used to help limit inflammation and manage pain.

Medications

Over-the-counter medications, like nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory (NSAID) drugs, can help reduce swelling and discomfort. For certain patients with more severe pain, stronger pain-relieving medications may be necessary.

Foot and Ankle Physical Therapy

Foot and ankle therapy may be prescribed from your NJ Spine and Wellness doctor; this type of foot and ankle treatment aims to promote quicker healing while stretching and strengthening the area to help prevent further injuries in the future.

Surgical Treatments for Foot and Ankle Pain

For chronic, severe foot and ankle pain that doesn’t respond to conservative treatments, surgical intervention may be necessary. While surgery is typically considered a last resort, your NJ Spine and Wellness foot and ankle treatment specialist can determine which procedure is right for your specific condition. We feature a team of world-class surgeons that can perform a variety of treatments, including:
